- Be aware of the phenomenon culture shock: Do your research and learn about the different stages. That alone can make it easier to deal with, because you know that another phase will come up soon and change everything again.
- Accept it: Don’t deny it, think about what phase you’re actually in, and remember that you’re not the only one experiencing this phenomenon.

I am constantly looking for the next book to read, especially before my next trip. I hope some of you feel the same, because I have collected my favorite travel-related books of all time for you. I hope, you’ll enjoy them as much as I did. Let me know, which books are your favorites 🙂
- Bill Bryson, Notes from a small Island (Reif für die Insel): This is the first travel-related book I have ever read, which is probably why it is so dear to me. I got it from my great uncle after telling him about planning my first ever solo trip, which I wanted to spend in the UK. After reading this book, I wanted to reread it immediately and plan out the exact same itinerary that Bill Bryson followed as he traveled around the UK. This trip never happened, but it definitely stoked my excitement for travel. It would recommend it to anyone, who is interested in the UK and intrigued by Bill Bryson’s exquisite style of writing.

I am super happy to announce that I have been nominated for the Infinity Dreams Award from both Deniza, a German med student blogging about fitness and nutritional science over at askdeniza.com, and from Jessie, a blogger from Poland writing about all things in life, especially learning and languages, at papercoffeestore.wordpress.com. Thank you both so much for the nomination! And the rest of you enjoy the storytime and feel free to participate with your blog as well!
I am a little late on this one and I don’t have as many favorites as I had last time, since I was basically in the library the whole month, but I thought I would share them with you anyways. Enjoy!
my first full month of blogging is now officially over and it has been so much fun. I have received so much support and kind words from you, that I decided to spread a little love myself. Here is the first edition of my monthly favorites from all across the internet. Not everything is travel related, but I thought you might like it anyway. Enjoy!Read More »
It is time for another link up with Kiki from initstimeblog.com. The blogging prompt that she and her co-host Leelee came up with is once again perfect for me: Summer Highlights. Unfortunately, this is my last week of summer vacation before I have to go back to Berlin for school and work. Although I have a serious case of wanderlust, I didn’t do a lot of traveling. Except for a quick little trip for London, I “just” went back to my hometown to stay with my family for several weeks. I needed a break from all the stress in the last year and I also haven’t spent a lot of time with my family in the last two years. Enough with the rambling, let’s get started with my personal summer highlights!Read More »
today I am participating in a link-up for the first time. I found this link-up, called the Circle, which is a bunch of beautiful, strong, and inspiring women. The prompt idea is “Blogger Introductions”, which I think fits very well since I haven’t introduced myself yet. So I thought, I should overcome my doubts and start writing.Read More »
It was my 23rd birthday just a couple of days ago and shortly before midnight, my roommate asked me a question I’ve never been asked before: What do you want to achieve in within your next year of life? One might think this would be quite a common question, but especially recently everyone just asked me about my plans for my career etc. So I thought, maybe it’s time to think of wishes and plans that have nothing to do with my career and that’s how I came up with this list. There are quite a few career things on the list (I can’t help it!), but a lot more personal things:
